What are people reading in Kelowna, B.C.?

Mosaic Books is owned by Michael and Michele Neill, who took over the store in 1995.

Handout

  • Mosiac Books
  • Owners: Michael and Michele Neill

In 1995, Michael and Michele Neill relocated to Kelowna, B.C., and took over Mosaic Books, which has been a fixture in the city’s downtown for 51 years. In addition to the store (which moved in 1999), the Neills also develop inventory-management software for 280 other Canadian bookstores. “While we have a lot of success with local authors, right now Shelley Wood’s The Quintland Sisters is doing really well,” daughter and store manager Alicia Neill says. “A lot of customers remember the Dionne quints, and it’s a compelling read.”
